[Status: Not planned] Editable Task Completion Date

 I have started a project about a year in and am trying to track the progress of the project so far. Unfortunately whenever I create a task and mark it complete, it states that the completion date is today even though it was completed months ago. I would like to see an editable completion date (at least for the Admin role) so that Planned and Actual completion dates can be compared and reported accurately, rather than having a huge number of tasks completed on the day the project is loaded on to Wrike.

Greg Gibbs There have been some important releases lately, like bi-directional email communications with non-Wrike users, conditions in Wrike's automation, and of course custom item types. There are many more to come soon, and I'm hoping you'll find them useful!

Wrike should address this problem quickly!  The "Date Completed" field is especially annoying when onboarding, and when importing MS Project files.  Having the complete date always set to the "date marked completed" simply falsifies our process, and workarounds reduce Wrike to a manual process not much better than Excel.  I agree with Rob G. Irwin above, that this field should be called "Date Marked Completed" --but Duration should be calculated with an "Actual Completion Date" that is editable--otherwise Wrike isn't providing correct information without a manual workaround that seriously distorts the time it has actually taken to complete a task.  Why have a field whose lack of changeability renders it useless as a measure of our process?

I would like to check on an update on making the completed date field editable . I have been tasked with tracking overages of days for both tasks and subtasks. I tried a workaround for the issue of not allowing an edit to the completed date .I created a new custom field for complete date that is editable to get past the limitation of your current completed date. I added a calculated field  for actual days to complete the task/subtask. I then added another calculated field to determine the percentage over between what the expected  duration and actual duration was. The gap I have is I can't find a way to have the custom actual days field not take weekends into consideration when totaling days like the stock duration does . So using a custom field does not solve my problem unless you can tell me if a custom field can somehow not take weekends into consideration when calculating days using one stock date field and custom date field  . Let me know if am explaining clearly as I know I am even a bit confused when reading what I typed
